Program Description

Hevruta, a collaboration of the Shalom Hartman Institute and Hebrew College, is a fully integrated gap-year program for North American and Israeli student leaders from a diverse range of Jewish backgrounds and life experiences.
 This exciting and dynamic learning opportunity will address both Israeli and North American cultures and contexts as compelling centers of contemporary Jewish leadership and discovery.

Over the course of their 10-month experience, Hevruta participants will engage in rigorous inquiry and text study, while taking advantage of Jerusalem’s rich intellectual and spiritual resources. A three-week North American component will explore American Jewish identity in a global context, deepening the exchange of ideas among students.

After completing the program, Hevruta alumni will be well-positioned to use their influential voices to shape the Jewish people’s most important conversations and communal decisions.
